New IT Security Resources
The IT Security office has added a new Video Gallery to its web site. Currently, the gallery is hosting three videos aimed at helping the Cornell community increase security awareness:
- Email Phishing 101 – A look at the Java phish that caught many Cornellians by surprise
- Secure Passwords in Plain English
- Phishing Scams in Plain English
Please inform Cornell faculty, staff, and students about the new Video Gallery and encourage everyone to watch the videos.
